<HTML>The Solex has a 0.7 H.P. engine, and you won't be too happy with it if you do alot of hill climbing. In its own right though, it is the gas mileage champ at 200MPG.
I own two of them and my first impression was that they are gutless. You have to understand that they are actually a motorized bicycle, and as such I would rather motor one than pedal it! Either way, you gotta love 'em if you own 'em.
Check out the Yahoo Clubs for the Solex Owners of America. Lot's of good info there!
